What I hope this grueling roadtrip does for the Suns

*Please note, this is my first post. Yay!*

So we all know this upcoming roadtrip is going to be difficult. But there's a bright side....I think...

So...this roadtrip is the longest and probably most difficult stretch of games that the Suns have all season. Throwing in the fact that these 5 games are going to be played over 9 days all over the country, we're going to have some very broken down players (Nash and Hill) by the time our team limps home.

One good thing that I see that can come of this is some very interesting rotations that may help our beleaguered coaching staff figure out exactly how to maximize the ability of our players! I believe that we have the pieces to make a playoff run but they'll need to be fit in the right place.

Possible starters:
SG: Redd - if the Redd Baron can get his legs back soon, then I hope for him to start
PF: Morris - he has the 3 like Frye but his scrappiness and Eff-you-I-don't-care-if-I'm-a-rookie-I'll-still-smack-you-in-the-face attitude can bring that spark that the starters have lacked

Resulting Bench:
SG: Dudley - not doing well as a starter, his scrappiness and hustle (but lack of athleticism) makes him more suitable to the bench, where he shined during that oh-so-wonderful 2010 playoff run
SF: Warrick - lack of defense, yes, but his offense and size compared to the average 3-man make him a great fit here
PF: Frye - this is where Frye belongs (see Dudley reasoning minus the scrappiness...and hustle...and athleticism)

Not posting anything about trades here, that would only lead to rosterbation...and the inevitable remorse.
